Making a Slim Aero-ported Box for Dual 8 Inch Car Subwoofers



Published
Get your car bumpin' with these two mighty beefy 350w RMS eight inch subwoofers! Factory specified dual 4 Ohm voice coils each and wired into 1 Ohm final impedance that now can handle up to 1400w RMS amplifier power without worrying about any distortions being in the way.

Straight out of the box open air resonance Fs of 45Hz and we about to build a box that is tuned 2 Hz higher. So grab a drink, sit back, relax and watch this cool video!

00:00 - Start with subwoofer box designing tool, Bass Box Pro 6.

Box is entirely made of cheap marine plywood for a light weight. I've managed to have its port a 4 inch opening and flared up to 6 inch. Also a small flare on the other side.
